It was a bitter pill to swallow

Our Chihuahua, Toby Lee Fowler, is a piece of work. He is disobedient, headstrong, high-strung and a light sleeper. He is also one of the smartest and most manipulative dogs on the place.

It has always been a challenge to get him to swallow any kind of pill. At least that’s what I always thought until Boomer, our boxer puppy, contracted a mysterious illness. It was an inflammatory condition. Our vet prescribed prednisone in tablet form, and it took care of the problem. Every morning, I’d wrap the pill up in a small piece of American cheese, the slice kind, and give it to him. He’d gobble it right up.

New scam targets your home security system

If you have a home security system — and especially if you have signs in the yard or stickers on the door that say so — you could become the victim of a scam.

Here’s how it works: Scammers will spot your security warning signs and show up at your door. (In many cases these will be college students hired for the summer.) They’ll say that your security company has gone out of business and that you need to sign a contract for new service with their company. They’ll ask you to give personal information as part of signing up for the new service, but any equipment they give you will be fake.

If this happens to you, don’t rush to sign up. There are steps you need to take first.
